Centrifugal castings are made when a mold is continuously rotated at high speed while molten metal is poured in. The molten metal in a centrifugal casting is thrown toward the inside of the mold wall from the G forces inside. The molten metal solidifies after cooling. After cooling, any impurities can be machined away that have appeared during the casting process. Centrifugal castings are made the same way Babbitt bearings are made and the terms can be used interchangeably.
